Fondazione Fuori! was established in Turin in 2011, to collect, preserve, and make available the significant archive materials of Fuori! (Out!), the Fondazione Sandro Penna, and Gruppo Solidarietà Aids, as well as materials that have been donated by many individuals over the years. BRIEF HISTORY Fuori! was the first Italian gay liberation movement. Founded in 1971, Fuori! was dissolved as a national movement in 1982, but continued its work at the local level through 1989. Fuori! entered into a federative pact with the Partito Radicale in 1974. Fuori! has always maintained an international component, beginning with its participation at the Arahus Conference in 1972 and the establishment of ILGA in 1978 in Coventry, and has organized numerous national and some international events, including demonstrations in Moscow in 1977 and 1980, and in Tehran in 1979. Fuori!’s headquarters are located in Turin, but the organization has been active in all of Italy’s large and medium-sized cities. The Foundation has produced a documentary on the history of Fuori! that is available in both English and Italian upon request. Fondazione Sandro Penna was established in Turin in 1980, at the initiation of Fuori!, to develop cultural activities to support and disseminate research, knowledge and information related to LGBT issues in all aspects: social, scientific, literary, etc., as well as to maintain the library and historical archives that Fuori! and its activists have produced. Gruppo Solidarietà Aids was the first support group for homosexuals with HIV/AIIDS in Turin. Established n 1988, Gruppo Solidarietà Aids participated in the founding of the Italian AIDS Forum. Gruppo Solidarietà Aids concluded its activities in the late 1990s. ARCHIVE MATERIALS The Foundation’s archive materials are numerous and diverse. For the most part, they consist of documents collected by the three organizations mentioned above, as well as donations made by private citizens. At the present time, the inventoried materials occupy approximately 120 linear meters of shelving and consist of the historical archive (papers of the associations and private papers of the leaders of the Italian movement), the graphic and photographic archives, and the audiovisual archives. The materials for which inventories are incomplete or do not exist include: the library (consisting of approximately 3,000 volumes); newspaper and magazine materials (composed of an unknown number of national and international journals of the LGBT movement and over 70,000 press clippings from 1976-1982 that have been digitized); pamphlets/brochures, and scientific literature. Most of the material is related to the Italian movement, but there are a significant number of journals and documents from European and international organizations as well. Over the years the archives have been partially inventoried and preserved thanks to the volunteer work of dozens of men and women, as well as contributions from the Regione Piemonte, the Provincia di Torino, and the Compagnia di San Paolo, which have enabled the hiring of professional archivists. WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE FUTURE We are seeking partners to complete the task of inventorying and cataloging the materials in our possession, as well as assistance with the digitization of the more perishable materials, such as magazines, brochures and press clippings.
